Abuse comes into life in various forms; there can be physical, mental, emotional or spiritual abuse. In whatever form it appears, there is always a victim and a perpetrator. Abuse is occurring at an increasing rate in Adams and Wells County. The Adams Wells Crisis Center was created by a group of concerned citizens to provide basic help for those experiencing some form of abuse in their lives. The help we offer addresses the fundamental needs of life; temporary refuge in our shelter, food, clothing and emergency medical needs. It is our goal to create hope in the hearts of persons victimized by domestic violence and assist them in securing their independence and a violence free future.
